Evelyn Mitchell Hauk

April 28, 1916 — May 18, 2016

After 100 years, Evelyn Verser Mitchell Hauk’s life ended peacefully on May 18, 2016 at Lonoke Health and Rehab Center. She was born April 28, 1916 in the Fairview Community in Lonoke County to Earl and Maggie Verser, where she was raised in an extraordinary loving family. She attended school in Fairview and met and married Eulan Guy Mitchell. He passed away two months before their son Guy was born. When Guy was about eight, Evelyn married Lawrence Hauk.

Evelyn and Lawrence lived on a farm about five miles from where she was raised. She loved being a farmer’s wife and was very active in many area of the farming operation. She loved having her hands in the dirt. She raised beautiful flower and vegetable gardens that she shared with her family and neighbors. She was caring and compassionate and always willing and ready to help anyone in need.

After the death of Lawrence, Evelyn built a house in the town of Lonoke and moved another five miles. She often mentioned that she had lived all these years and had only traveled ten miles.

Evelyn faithfully served the Lord and was a member of the Lonoke Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for over 50 years. Thirty of those years were teaching the residents at the former Golden Years Nursing Home. She exhibited a solid foundation based on Christian beliefs and exceptional common sense.

Surviving Evelyn is a dedicated daughter-in-law, Phyllis Mitchell; grandsons, Scott (Rita) Mitchell, Neal (Julie) Mitchell and Wade Mitchell, and step-grandsons, Mark Davis and Scott Davis; four great-grandchildren, Drew (Audrey) Mitchell, Luke (Elise) Mitchell, Carrie Mitchell, and Brooklynn Mitchell; and one great-great grandchild, Baylor Mitchell. She is also survived by two sisters, Martha Chrietzberg and Carolyn (Marc) Oudin, sister-in-law, Lydia Verser and a host of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by the light of her life, her son Guy Verser Mitchell, her parents, two husbands, two brothers, Earl Verser, Jr. and Jerry Verser, three sisters, Allene Rauch, Josephine Bryant, and Lucille Baker.

A celebration of her life will be at the Lonoke Baptist Church on Saturday, May 21 at 2:00 p.m. A visitation will precede the service beginning at 12:30. Burial will be in Carlisle Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to Lonoke Baptist Church.

The family wishes to thank the Lonoke Care Center assisted living facility for Evelyn’s exceptional care received during the last six years and to the Lonoke Health and Rehab facility for the love, care, and support the last few months. Arrangements by Boyd Funeral Home, Lonoke.
